Personally I think they just feel Windows 7 breathing down their backs, and are resorting to whatever they have left.

I love how their stupid Mac vs PC commercial states, "since you're moving everything, might as well switch to a Mac."

Right, like taking 10 minutes to upgrade to Windows 7 (thus moving nothing) is more efficient then spending over a grand on a whole nother' computer, then spending more time learning a whole new OS and hours upon hours migrating your files.

Their ads aren't even remotely accurate, factual or funny anymore.

In fact, their Mac vs PC ads are so irritating, I refuse to buy any product that Apple/Mac sells, ever again.

I know I'm not alone in this...

I'm curious how many sales they potentially have lost, due to their Mac vs. PC stereotyping commercial?

Seems Microsoft has nipped this one in the butt. I only get Microsoft and Newegg links with various combination's of Windows, 7, upgrade, download, etc.

This makes as much sense as a Blackberry ad for the search phrase "iPhone".

Besides, most people who Google "Windows 7 download" probably want Win 7 FREE (ie: pirated software).

I don't fault any advertiser as long as they don't resort to what AOL did in the 90s by bundling their "free AOL" trial CDs with... Kraft cheese. Until Apple sinks that low I allow them whatever dumb ideas they want to sell their product.
